MacAttack

Written by Jaime Walden

 

I make lists for everything.  So, for my first post here is a list of my Macworld highlights: 1.  Landing in San Francisco (note: I am better on the ground.) 2.  At the hotel, Jeff sitting in a a very large puddle in a 1980s pop-culture chair. 3.  After a long set-up day at the Moscone, going to Ann’s new place (from Apple,) where she made a special gluten-free lasagna for me! 4.  Seeing Liyana’s reaction to the Bus.  5.  Talking with Tapiwa from Liyana about Walker Texas Ranger. 6.  I am obsessed with our newly installed Litepanels.  I would have also frozen in the Moscone without them! 7.  Meeting so many wonderful new people (SFSA students, Julia Chigamba, Towela), and watching them create a song and music video in two days! 8.  After so much hard work, having a successful and fun after party featuring Liyana and our video premiere. 9.  Singing silly songs with Rob Healy, Healy. 10. Comparing shoe sizes with Sinbad. Side note: I still need to see the Full House house!!! On Mama’s Jukebox: MGMT - “Kids” x mama

On My Way

Written by The Lennon Bus

 

5:00 AM:  My Dad dropped me off at the airport in Milwaukee about 30 minutes ago….  I haven’t slept much, I spend last evening saying goodbye to the people that mean most to me: Mom and Dad, my brother Marek,  my best friends in the world, Rob, Dave, and Turner, and of course, Andrea.  For some reason when I say goodbye to her, I lose my cool and get emotional, she does too. I got my ticket, props for the aisle seats.  Got through security no problem, props to the “Experienced Traveler” line. Right now I am sitting at the gate, getting ready to board the flight that will start this new adventure for me.  Did I pack everything?  Let’s see…. iPod, toothbrush, toothpaste, plenty of socks, did I pack my lucky Mr. T t-shirt?  Yes I got it…. Whew! The plane is boarding now… in a few short hours, everything will be totally different, and I am excited, and with that feeling comes nervousness… I hope my hotel room has a bathroom. Ok, good talk! Until next time! Erik Niewiarowski
